Maintenance Month 3

Kate went to the clinic today to begin month 3 of maintenance. She received her usual IV Vincristine and had her counts checked. Her ANC was even lower than last time at 510 so we are seriously praying that either her counts come up or she doesn't get a fever over Christmas! (Nobody wants to be in the hospital at Christmas.) Her platlets are lower too but the hemoglobin is great at 10.
Right now Kate has a cold and productive cough but she certainly doesn't seem sick - unless sick looks like a girl jumping on a trampoline for an hour a day! She continues to be happy and is very excited for Christmas.

It's amazing that Kate continues to defy the odds with her counts so low but doing SOOOO well. She's a tough cookie and we're glad for that. As always, we're grateful for every minute she's healthy and the meds are doing their job.

GO KATE!
